popes met last weekend. pope emeritus benedict xvi warmly welcomed his successor pope francis. both elderly men both wearing white, and that is where the similarities end, at least on the surface. the difference in style was a visible from the very start of their papacy's. in 2005, benedict appeared in ornate and colorful garments. he bore tradition on his shoulders. eight years later, pope francis appeared in simple dress to the public in rome. >> buena sera. a simple address, brothers and sisters, good evening. he donned a plain white cassock and a simple iron cross, and everyone knew he was wearing ordinary black shoes, not red ones. observers like the berlin-based catholic theologian are intrigued by the differences. >> what is remarkable is the new pope's simplicity. by contrast, the pope and marriages had a certain refined ness. for example, the brussels lace that he obviously loved. >> benjamin bishop, a protestant, is impressed by the new pope's approach. >> even if there is great pleasure in the liturgy, i is about turning to the people. he seems better able to do this than
. that turned out not to be the case. he put on a rock star show. pope benedict when he took his name was doing it in honor of pope benedict xv whose mission was to reunion -- reuni-fi. >> it tells us a lot. the name they've chosen for themselves they're trying to telegraph what type of leader they'll be to. >> to catholics worldwide and the other cardinals. >> megyn: we're told after the protodeacon announces the pope the new pope we're told will likely give greetings in several languages then speak in his native language or perhaps in italian. john and i talked about how john paul ii struggled with his italian but it only made the crowd love him more and he said if i make a mistake, you will correct me. everyone loved him. we'll see what the pope's native language is and whether he chooses to go to it. one of the front runser is from milan. after that the new pope will be expected to celebrate mass with the cardinals in the sistine chapel on the days following the election. an important part of this process. then jo
repression. john paul ii grew up under the boot of moscow. benedict under the nazis. perhaps that explains their inability to unshackle the church from the past. people who are repressed in their religion tend to be very conservative in holding on to what's been entrusted to them. well, here's hoping, prayer's really in order here, that the next leader of the catholic church has something of john xxiii in him because looking at the problem of the celibate priesthood and the problem of american catholics and the birth control view of paul vi and the role of women in the church lots needs to be done and it's the job of a good, wise, courageous pope to do it. god bless our next pope. god bless the decision on how to pick him. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the beltway media is focused on the wrong threat. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> it makes me very uncomfortable to have the white house telling reporters you're going to regret doing so
this thursday night first time in six centuries. the catholic church has a former pope. benedict the xvith became pope emeritus today. his retirement official after an 8-year reign. >> church bears rang in the distance as the pope boarded a helicopter to take him away from the vatican. [ applause ] but before he left, a final meeting with the men who will elect his replacement. [ applause ] >> shepard: may god reward you said one of the cardinals before the pope delivered a surprise address. instructing them to overcome their differences as they gather in the coming days. >> among you, in the college of cardinals, there is a future pope to whom already today i promise my unconditional reverence and obedience. >> shepard: the cardinals kissing the pope's ring and saying their goodbyes. [ applause ] >> vatican workers showing their appreciation as the pope walked out the door. and, with that, benedict the xvith departed the vatican for the final time as sitting pope. his helicopter making 17-minute flight southeast to the pope's summer home. is he expected to remain there until the new pope
. the venerable pope benedict xvi to whom we renew in this minute all of our gratitude. >> the very next big event comes 30 minutes from now, give or take. the cardinals will line up least senior to most senior. they will all process into the chapel to take their vows of secrecy. at that point, everyone else is kicked out. the doors are officially locked and the conclave begins. my colleague chris cuomo is as close to that process as anyone can get. he joins us live. chris, it's likely, but technically, we could have a pope today. so officially, when does chimney watch begin? >> it begins as soon as the door closes and votes begin. no question about that. there's a very heavy expectation that tonight's vote is more a familiarity. an introduction to it. and it will become much more in earnest tomorrow when they'll start doing two vote it's in morning session. two votes in the afternoon session. that basically gives you two opportunities for certain chimney smoke watch. because they burn ballots after every second vote. there are two times a day, assuming they don't elect a pope that we'll be lookin

in the teaching of pope benedict. what benedict did was to teach us about jesus. this man is going to show us jesus' face and i'm absolutely convinced of that. and it's a moment of great surprise, and an institution that prides itself on tradition, and sometimes a tradition that doesn't really free us. he's going to take us back to the tradition that's freeing. and to remind us who we are. because every time -- we have had some difficulties over the past years. >> i think back to eight years ago when i was here. and the sadness, obviously, following the death of pope john paul ii. and to be in the square on this night, there was such joy there, and such reverence. such silence at times when people were kind of reflecting and praying. praying silently, sometimes praying out loud. but the silence really struck me. >> yeah, the silence, and also when he came out on the loggia, hello, everybody, good evening. not a normal greeting. and he didn't follow the script. he decided to connect with people. this is a bishop coming to meet his people. rome has been without a bishop. he wanted to bond with
